Donate to the BRVA and support your community. The BRVA has many fixed expenses such as the monthly electric bill for the walkway lighting along the Canal Esplanade and Monon Trail, and landscaping and mowing expenses for medians and common areas in the Village. Additional funds are used for other Village improvements and continue our advocacy role here in Broad Ripple. Your donation is tax-deductible as we are a 501c3 not-for-profit community organization.
Donations may also be made for specific items such as the RiverWalk or the Bill Brink Memorial Garden. Read more about the RiverWalk here.
The Bill Brink Memorial Garden is a landscaped linear oasis along the Monon honoring the life-long Broad Ripple Resident who passed away in 2011. Bill Brink was a self-taught wildlife photographer, naturalist and outdoorsman who, until his death occupied the Broad Ripple home in which he was born. A cofounder of the Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society and an active member of the Amos Butler Audubon Society, Brink also served on the boards of the Friends of Holiday Park and the Indiana Audubon Society. The garden reflects Bill’s passion for the great outdoors, native Indiana plants, wildlife, art and Broad Ripple Village.
